DBSW, the label which was named following a young and drunken absurd attempt to tackle the on-going crisis of water conservation has unsurprisingly garnered critical acclaim regarding the innovation embedded into its quirky conversationals. The South Korean brand designs its collections with the ideology injected that they are to be used a social lubricant, prompting the conversation surrounding the graphic fuelled garments.
For SS16, initial inspirations stemmed from the cutting and folding of paper and playing around with stationary, resulting in the titling of Paper Craft. The collection withholds a double-layered jersey sporting luminous layers of geometrical shapes; anorak jumpers mastered using a paper-like Tyvek and a large selection of shirts and t-shirts, ranging from the detailing of the minimalist motif of a single pencil to the overpowering prints vividly decorating the sharp silhouettes. The collection references DBSW’s realisation of the significance of paper within our daily lives through both the whimsical visuals and the innovative origami folding of the Paper Craft cap, while typography is considered and playfully infused in relation to the theme at hand.
